What I hate about my digital scale is that it is not reliable. Like today, I stepped on it 6 times in a row and these were my readings:

The variation isn't too wide, but when you are counting on it to detect small losses, it is annoying. I usually just pick one of the readings in the middle that came up more than once (the 192.8 in this example) to be my weigh-in number. Do the scales being recommended give you a consistent weight every time you stand on it, or is it normal for scales to be just a little unreliable?

All-Time High: 226 lbs. Restart: 1/6/13 at 210 lbs
Step #1: 200 (5%); Step #2: 189 (10%); Step #3: 163 ("overweight" BMI); Step #4: Set Healthy Weight Goal
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle
